The OSJ Store

The OSJ Store

Howdy Jewelry Fan! We’ve come steamrolling into 2020, and there’s so much great stuff going on, it’s hard to believe it. I began 2019 thinking things were reaching a new level. And they did. And that has only continued and expanded into this New Year. If you're tracking (following) Original Sin Jewelry’s journey on social media—Facebook (@OriginalSinJewelry) & Instagram (@margaret_osj), you may have noticed that I’m settling into a Brick and Mortar Store at La Encantada in Tucson, AZ.

Honestly (and you know I must, in all things be honest), I feel more like an accidental store owner, having grown accustomed to the life of a traveling, exhibiting Contemporary Art Jeweler. I enjoy meeting you in your hometown, Jewelry Fan, where you live, where you find your Joys and Challenges, where you live your best, authentic life, all across this big, beautiful country. However, there’s a longing in me to make my roots deeper, to expand my heart and soul and include my own hometown in my work, my art, my journey. So, having read “The Surrender Experiment” by Michael A. Singer, I’ve embraced this opportunity as precisely the perfect moment to stretch in an unexpected direction.

If you’re ever in the Old Pueblo, please stop by and say “Howdy!”.  Currently, we’re on the Upper Level of the La Encantada Plaza between Humble Pie and Barre 3.  My amazing store staff works hard to create the best shop windows (really selfie worthy!) in the Plaza and the best shopping environment for Contemporary Art Jewelry in the city.  We are Tucson Local. We are Tucson Proud.  And we are bringing OSJ’s brand of Authentically Positive Conscientiously Satisfying Jewelry to my Sonoran Desert hometown.

Don’t worry, Jewelry Fan, I’ll still be doing shows and meeting up with you in your hometown. Just maybe not as often (you can find my schedule HERE). If you’ve been holding onto an idea for a Custom OSJ piece of Contemporary Heirloom Art Jewelry, now’s the time to either come by the store, or get in touch online HERE in order to get your project started. We might be a bit too late for Valentine’s Day production wise, but Easter and Mother’s Day are right around the corner and sooner is always better than later. You can also call, text 1-985-377-2035 to set an appointment at the store.


(Whispering—you can also always find my work online at, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Really. Even at 2am in your pajamas or birthday suit. I won’t see, I won’t ask, and I won’t tell.)

Whew! You found me. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'm hoping you are more than tempted to purchase one or several pieces. I am a full time, self representing, exhibiting artist (although I'm not in any organizations stating such in any official capacity-- I guess I should look into that). I travel from coast to coast participating in some of the finest art festivals. I also participate in small, funky events. I teach my techniques and can be booked by you, your group or your local shop. Call me with questions, you'll find my phone number in the upper right hand of every page. In the mean time-- please buy something!! Lets support the makers of USA, like me!

What’s Up with the Curated Collections?

May 27, 2020

Through the Curated Collections, I’m bringing you groupings of related pieces, much the same as I would arrange in my display cases. Each of them is a mini-universe unto themselves, relating in materials, colors and fabrication to each other. In a very direct way, I’m bringing my Art Festival Exhibition to you, here online. There are nearly 300 pieces in this first iteration of the Curated Collections, divvied up into approximately 25-piece collections. I’m even sneaking some new work in too- pieces that were going to debut this Spring and Early Sumer. That’s 12 bi-weekly installments of art-show-ness for you, Jewelry Fan!

Sad Hydrangea Plant delivered to Original Sin Jewelry
A Dead Hydrangea Broke my Heart…

May 19, 2020

Epic. Failure. My dirty, little, shameful secret. And one woman, through an act of compassionate kindness broke open the floodgate of feelings and made me feel special whether that plant lived or died (well, it had already died, but that’s not the point). I cried for about 12 straight hours, throat raw and eyes puffy for days. I’m learning to be ok with failure and loss. I’m grateful my loss is only a business, not a family member or friend, but it’s still a loss and I needed to let myself feel it.
